I love peaches when they are in season! They are so naturally sweet and flavorful – perfect for a healthier dessert option. This recipe is delicious and plenty sweet. In fact, I cut the sugar in half and it was sweet enough for my taste buds. I even roasted the peaches without any of the bourbon sauce and topped with the yogurt sauce. That was delicious with almost no added sugar.
Bourbon-Glazed Peaches with Yogurt
1 (2-inch) piece vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
5 ½ tablespoons dark brown sugar, divided
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
3 tablespoons bourbon
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
4 firm, ripe peaches, halved and pitted
- Scrape seeds from vanilla bean into a medium bowl. Combine seeds, bean, yogurt, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, and a dash of salt. Let stand for 1 hour; discard bean.
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar, remaining dash of salt, bourbon, and vanilla extract in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add peaches; toss gently. Arrange peaches, cut side down, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Reserve sugar mixture. Bake peaches at 350° for 10 minutes. Turn peach halves over; drizzle cavities with reserved sugar mixture. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until just tender. Serve with yogurt and juices. Makes 4 servings (Serving size: 2 peach halves with about ¼ cup yogurt).
